If you frequently visit my blog, then you would know that most of my blog post since I started blogging again this year is about my travel and adventures. Yes, I love to travel.. who doesn't?!!

But the thing is, this blog isn't just for travel. This is my personal comfort zone, my go to spot for everything I want to document. I'm not saying that I'm starting to become a lazy ass blogger again but this is a reminder that I should start blogging more stuff aside from my travel diaries. 

And speaking of travelling.. I'm thinking of listing here all the provinces in the Philippines and tick it off here whenever I visited the province already. Sounds like a challenge huh? Because it is! I am challenging myself to visit all 81 provinces of the beautiful and amazing country of the Philippines. There's no time limit. Just pure fun and exploration. :)
